Cruising the Baltic

cruise ship
salutes calm seas
and picturesque shorelines
captivating cultures call out


Cinquain Poetry contest entry



I usually write travel poems while I am on a trip to try to capture glimpses of my adventures. This verse was an exception after a week back home, I must be trying to replay the positive experience. The picture is of Tallinn, Estonia, the last port of call on our cruise. Please excuse any late responses to reviews since I will be making my annual appearance at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival starting Wednesday.
